Farewell Lövholmsbrinken


This area in Stockholm will soon be torn down to give room for apartment buildings - something Stockholm is always short of. The area where I sit to draw this is a little harbour for private boats, a rough forgotten spot that I suspect will soon be exploited too.

28 x 17 cm, Lamy Safari with Noodler´s Lexington grey ink and watercolours in a Moleskine Watercolor Folio Sketchbook.

I love the intricacy and detail of this painting. The balloons add just the right touch! nancy

Very nice. I too am struck by the shadow on the boat and under the boat. And the balloons in the sky--such a Stockholm thing!

Take advantage of the spot while you can. Great view. It looks like such a great day, why isn't that boat out on the water enjoying the beautiful day like the balloons? Thanks for sharing.

Love the foreground. Beautiful work.

Love the painting. The heaviness of the boat in the trailer (current land use) juxtaposed against the lightness of the hot air balloons (promise of better times to come).

Wow. It's been a while since I last came. Totally amazed with your work.
